Rough day today. I just found out my Grandma Jan has cancer. She is like a mother to me, since my sister, mother, and I lived with her and Gramps from when I was 4 to 12 after my folks divorced and before my mom remarried, so this is really tough for me. She is a total inspiration to me and has always been so kind, praying for me, giving me support, making meals for me if I don't have enough food, making or buying clothes for me if I need them, I could go on and on.
She is the toughest person I know. She grew up on a farm in Iowa. Her father was a moonshine maker and left the family during the depression. They always had food on the table, but it was rough. She survived a terrible case of Scarlet Fever as a child, the scars of which she still bears today.
She met my Grandpa Leo during WWII. They moved to the Twin Cities when he contracted polio. They thought he wasn't going to live, but she went to church every day to pray for him, and they are both still as feisty as ever!
Just wanted to give you guys a headsup if there is a lack of posting these next few days. Thanks for understanding.
